Sam joined JUFJ Campaign Fund for the 2018 election cycle. As our communications staffer, he is the one you can blame for weird email formatting, terrible puns on social media, mailings sent to the wrong address, and way too many canvassing requests during the primary election season. He is also someone you can bother if you need help editing your op-ed or phone bank script, or if you just have to have more JUFJ Campaign Fund stickers.
Before working here, he was a music professor for ten years and a volunteer organizer at the Los Angeles LGBT Center for five. He has canvassed voters and trained volunteers from California to Maine, working on same-sex marriage, trans-inclusive non-discrimination ordinances, and LGBT inclusion in school curricula. He has a PhD in musicology, which is exactly as useful as it sounds. He sings with the Thomas Circle Singers, plays the cello, and has written articles about musicals, gender, and sexuality for a lot of publications that nobody reads.
